Schwabe is excited to welcome Laura Lemire to the firm. Armed with extensive experience in privacy and cybersecurity, Laura greatly enhances our ability to help our clients navigate the complexities of data protection law. She will provide practical, actionable legal advice regarding the increasing requirements in this dynamic and expanding area of the law.
For more than a decade, Laura served as senior privacy counsel for tech giants X (previously known as Twitter) and Microsoft. Given her extensive background in global data protection and technology law, Laura is prepared to advise a wide array of clients.
“Privacy laws are proliferating, adding to what many call the ‘alphabet soup’—GDPR, CCPA, OCPA, CPA, HIPAA, WMHMD, FCRA, COPPA, BIPA, FERPA, and more,” said Laura. “I help businesses manage the uncertainty new laws bring so they can thrive in our data-driven economy.”
“We are thrilled to have Laura on board,” said Stephen Sullivan, Schwabe’s Technology Industry Group Leader. “She brings extraordinary insight and will be a significant asset to our clients.”
Adding Laura to the Schwabe team underscores the firm’s commitment to delivering exceptional legal services based on its deep industry knowledge, and further solidifying its position as a leading firm in the region. The expansion of Schwabe’s data privacy and security bench serves as a direct response to the increasing market demand for robust legal support to navigate the evolving landscape of data protection across all industries.
